n Fig. 10.1, what kind of energy does ball A possess initially when at rest at the top of the hill? What kind of energies are involved as ball A moves down the hill? What kind of energy does ball A possess when it reaches the bottom of the hill and stops moving after hitting ball B? Where did the energy gained by ball B, allowing it to move up the hill, come from?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

From the given figure, the energies of Ball A and Ball B at different positions on the hill should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Energy is the ability to do work or produce heat. The law of conservation of energy says that theenergy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be converted from one type to another. It is also called the first law of thermodynamics, according to which the energy of the universe is constant.

Explanation
  • Initially, the energy possessed by Ball A when it is at rest at the top of the hill is Potential Energy.
  • Energies involved when the Ball A rolls down the hill are both kinetic and potential energy...
